*Red, White & Boom: On Friday, food and novelty vendors open at 11 a.m., and the fun continues all day. The highlight? The fireworks display at 10 p.m.

*Gallery Hop: The Short North Gallery Hop is Saturday, and as usual, boutiques will stay open late. It's always a good time—especially when it's warm. Shop, eat, drink and enjoy.

*Columbus Museum of Art: It's world-class, and admission is free during July and August thanks to a grant from PNC.
